The wearable innovation is easy to use and allow’s users a few simple hand gestures to keep you connected while you’re on the go. You can even assign different abilities to different actions and alerts.

“We’re excited to continue this journey with our partners at Google ATAP,” notes Paul Dillinger, VP Global Product Innovation, Levi Strauss & Co. “Two years after we first launched Jacquard – the technology has become smaller and more discrete, more affordable and with more useful.…but the premise and purpose remain the same: you can keep your phone in your pocket and your eyes on the world around you, staying connected without being distracted”.
